Walgreens and Almay…oh my!!

I am seriously cleaning up on the Almay deal!  Its so hard for me to not clean out any one store, but I am trying to go to the different stores in town to share the love.  I have not cleared out any of the shelves so far, so there should be some left for you to have fun too 😉

WAGS 11-4

This is from 14 transactions over 5 stores.  Here is what I got:

6 Scott Toilet paper 4-pk $3.99 each

2 Lysol wipes BOGO packs $5.49 each

2 Clorox toilet bowl cleaners $1.99

1 Nature’s Source bathroom cleaner $3.99 (gives a $2 RR)

1 Walgreen’s brand drain cleaner $3.49

4 Hefty one-zips $3.29 each (but on sale BOGO)

2 Walgreens storage bags 2/$3

1 Suave shampoos $1 each ( these were a bonus item for the beauty lady, so I helped her out 🙂 )

1 wax paper $1.99

1 70 sq ft foil $2.49

32 Almay mascaras $6.99 each

6 Almay foundations $9.99 each

9 Almay eyeshadows $7.49 each

6 pencils $.39 each & one Halloween bucket $.20 (Fillers – will give to nices/nephews)

Original cost for all of these items would have been $467.46.  But, by combining the Walgreens Almay deals, the BOGO sale, & using my RR to get the other items I needed, I only paid $20.66 for all of this!  That is over 96% savings!!!!!

I plan to do the deal a few more times before its over this week.  Check out my post on the Almay Deal if you want to join in the fun 🙂  The Register Rewards are printing all month, but the BOGO sale is just this week.  Good luck, and have fun!!!

    I mean, if you want to just send me some mascara for the cost of shipping, let me know.

    LMAO.. WHAT are you going to do with all that makeup? Although, i’m tempted to start at Walgreens, but I still don’t know how to just begin.

    IT works! do exactly what her list is and you too will save ALOT of cash. Seriously. This works and it’s completely legal. As a former store owner I do need to also add that the store is always reimbursed the face value of the coupon plus eight cents for each coupon. And as was previously stated the manufacture builds this into their overhead which means if you don’t use the coupons you are paying inflated prices. So use those coupons but only when something is on sale. 🙂
